The Good Lovelies

The Good Lovelies kick off the Folkus season!

We’re so excited that The Good Lovelies will open this season, along with The Space Between on Saturday, January 18th, 2020.

The Good Lovelies could very well be Canada’s sweethearts. This will be an intimate, stripped-down, trio show with a focus on harmony.

“Kerri Ough, Sue Passmore, and Caroline Brooks – immensely talented vocalists and songwriters in their own right; however, it’s their voices interwoven in harmony – powerful and pure, organic and inspiring – that elevates the Good Lovelies from impressive to peerless.”

The Good Lovelies won a Juno in 2010 for Roots and Traditional Album of the Year and are four-time Canadian Folk Music Award winners.

Although the season has sold out, there is a waitlist option for up to 20 tickets at each show.

Special guests The Space Between will be opening. Hometown girl Sonja Seiler brings her duo project, The Space Between, to Almonte. Nestling in a rootsy pocket somewhere between Appalachia and Toronto, their sound is clean and pure.

Check out videos for our January acts on the 2020 Season page.

Doors open 7:30, concert begins at 8pm on Saturday, January 18, 2020 at the Almonte Old Town Hall. Get the details on our concert space and amenities.

Sneak Peek! Folkus Series Launches this week

To start off our season, we’re holding a launch party Thursday, November 7th, 2019 at Equator Coffee Roasters, to celebrate our season and to celebrate our wonderful sound man, Brendan Gawn.

He never gets to mingle at shows because he’s working too hard. Brendan is an excellent sound person because he listens. He listens well because plays a mean bass. And he’ll be playing bass with the Brindled Cats, along with guitarist Rob McMurray. They may bring a few friends.

Join us for a pint or a coffee and possibly a bite to eat!
